Priority Review of Overseas Manufacturer Registration: Catch the Deadline of Oct. 31

Registered meat, aquatic product, dairy product and bird’s nest manufacturers will continue to be recognized by GAC. However, new exporters need to complete the registration following relevant regulations. New exporters of 18 food categories are subject to manufacturer recommended registration. For enterprises producing other 14 food categories (except meat, aquatic products, dairy products and bird’s nest), if they have exported relevant products to China since January 1, 2017, these enterprises can enjoy preferential review but need to submit relevant information before the end of this October.

On Apr. 13, 2021, General Administration of Customs of China (GAC) issued the new version of “Administrative Provisions on Registration of Overseas Manufacturers of Imported Foods”, which will come into effect on Jan. 1 2022. It stipulated that all food categories (excluding food additives and food related products) are subject to overseas manufacturer registration. Among them, the manufacturer registration of 18 food categories should be recommended by the competent authority of exporting countries, and enterprises producing other food categories can apply for the registration by themselves. As revealed by latest internal information, GAC has notified the competent authorities of exporting countries regarding the further information on registration requirements and process. Details are as follows.
